Constitutions of 1982, Paragraphs 10 - 16
Wherever we are sent, whatever our work may be, our
lives will be inspired by the love of the Heart of Jesus and
the desire of making Him known, expressed in:
Our service of education is carried out in a genuine relationship of mutual interaction, where each person both receives and gives so that all may grow together. Of its nature, our service of education means creating community among ourselves and with others. It asks of us generous commitment, serious on-going formation and a broad critical vision of the world, enlightened by faith.
It asks of us . . . a broad critical vision of the world, enlightened by faith.
John C. Haughey, SJ. Where is Knowing Going? (Georgetown University Press, 2009)
